If you're isolating at the moment, the repetition of daily life at home, going on less outings and generally not doing as much incidental exercise could be leaving you feeling a bit more tired than usual. Sound familiar?

We have some suggestions for you that might help you perk your energy back up a bit.

Try to maintain your normal schedule as much...

If you are like me, when it comes to exercise it isn’t just something that you do to stay healthy. It’s about a challenge, a tool for self-improvement.

Mentally I do much better when I am following a training program tailored toward a specific goal and over the past decade that goal has largely been to increase maximal strength on the main barbell lifts, the squ...

We all have a ‘cup’ that we give from, and we need to fill this cup constantly. If our cup isn’t full there is no way we can be our best personally or professionally. The habits we regularly engage in contribute to either filling this cup or emptying it. Obviously the ultimate goal is to put more good stuff in. This means having more positive, health-contributi...

How often should you be getting checked by your chiropractor? 

Of corse, this is a very individualised question and depends on different factors, such as your lifestyle, how much/what type of stress you are under, and how long you can hold your adjustments for (which again can depend on your lifestyle and what you are doing between visits).

Although having osteoporosis is not normal, it is the most common bone disease to affect humans and as such we often get questioned whether people can still get adjusted or whether chiropractic care can help.  The short answer, yes!

In order to understand osteoporosis, we need to understand that the bones become less dense, and when they are less dense, your bon...

Did you know that falls account for more than 80% of injury-related hospital admissions in people older than 65 years of age?

These aren't before or after shots, these are some pictrures demonstrating something we see all too often.

On the left is the posture of long-term SYMPATHETIC DOMINANCE (aka the central nervous systems code for STRESS).

The shoulders are rounded in an attempt to protect the chest and heart and ready to fight, the head is forward, ready to run.

‘Enjoy the journey, not the destination’ they say. The difficulty is that we don’t always understand the meaning of this until it’s too late.

We often talk about stress and stress management in our practice, and where there is stress there are stress hormones, the stress response. The thing with stress hormones is they accelerate the ageing process, and nobody w...

Here’s what we know. It’s impossible to separate the structure and function of your spine from the structure and function of your nervous system. What that means is that dysfunctional joints in your spine (joints that don’t move in the way they should, also known as subluxations) will interfere with the function of your nervous system and result in compromised...

You've probably heard about how good diaphragmatic (or at least deep) breathing is at some point in time. You are probably already aware that breathing is a fundamental part of you being alive. Of corse, we need to take in oxygen to survive - our brain does that automatically and without us even thinking about it. However, some types of breathing are more benef...
